Are you a solo or a soloist?

Do you prefer to work alone all of the time or do you prefer like to work alone within a group of people?

You are a solo if you prefer to work alone all of the time and enjoy your own company more than the company of others. As a solo, it’s important to make time to connect with others by meeting contacts in person, having coffee with friends, contacts or potential clients or attending networking events.

You are a soloist if you prefer to work alone part of the time yet like to have the opportunity to be part of a team, to have people around you to support and encourage you, to brainstorm ideas and strategy with you and to collaborate and complete projects with you. The soloist needs an orchestra like the orchestra needs the soloist.  

If you are a solo and are currently doing work more suited to a soloist – it’s time for a change. If you are a soloist and find yourself doing work that makes you feel lonely and isolated – it’s time for a change. Often it’s not the work or the job that’s the problem – it’s the fit. Make sure that you choose to do work that fits with your style – solo or soloist.
